Make the Most of Your Platform
Once you select your platform, make the most of the marketing automation tools now available to you by following these steps:
- Set up an onboarding meeting with a sales rep from your selected platform. Discuss your current marketing activities, lead management, and other related topics and ask for their opinion on setting up the system to maximize success.
- Dive into the features that help you land your next customers, like automating emails to mirror your sales pipeline. Keep in touch and stay top of mind — with minimal work.
- Consider integrating your marketing strategies. Perhaps your marketing and sales strategies were once managed separately; now, you could combine efforts with email campaigns that interact with “if, then” triggers in the system, which makes sure you’re not causing an email deluge in your customers’ inboxes.
